|People. These on the left, not bored by having to queue to get into Salute, were now queuing for Forgeworld|
I of course had a budget for my day, and as usual I over spent. I had a small list of 'must gets' but I always expect to see things that I had forgotten I wanted, and those things that were new and brilliant. First stop the Hawk Wargame stand. Things bought; a box of PHR Helios and Angelos. I also couldn't resist one of their 'show only' models for their new spaceship game - Dropfleet (Andy Chambers designed) and the 30mm model of an Ares walker (it will look smart on an Infinity table). I also got to meet Andy. I have been a big fan since his work with GW and in particular his Skaven army, and I thanked him for the inspiration he brought me. He was a very nice chap despite me becoming a bit of a fan-boy at this point. I declined his kind offer of a selfie to keep some small amount of self respect!
Next stop the nice people at Wartorn (www.wartorngames.com). You will not know their work as this is their first project. They have created a modern skirmish game called Infernal and it will soon be going to Kickstarter. I had done some play testing for it some months ago and they were show casing their first figures at the Show. I recommend you take a look, although please note I am biased.
On the list of things I have always wanted is the conversion kit that turns the GW Imperial Guard Taurox kit into a wheeled model rather than the rather disappointing tracked version. Step forth Zinge Industries (www.zinge.co.uk) who had some very interesting pieces for you to add that something special to your models. Well worth a look.

4 Ground doing more of their thing - too nice for words - apart from these.
On the trail of Infinity relevant terrain I was drawn towards Antenocitis Workshop. They had their range of sci-fi cars and bikes (very nice) and three sided advertising screens which I purchased along with some Japanese themed garden pieces. I know that the latter were popular because they were sold out when I went back to buy some more.
A couple of other things bought were aquarium plants for a jungle board I am planning (can't recall the supplier I got these from) and some road barriers from Urban Construct (www.urbanconstruct.co.uk). My nicest find, along with Zinge, was a range of MDF buildings from Wargame-Model-Mods (www.wargame-model-mods.co.uk). I bought their Outpost model which will be the centre piece of the aforementioned jungle board.
